Lower cover not intended for customer removal? No replaceable battery? That close to being a deal breaker. Unless they have done AMAZING things with power management, I cant see it being so hot. I *live* on my EVO 4G and go through 3, sometimes 4, batteries a day. And I don't use 4G or WiFi or Bluetooth - just phone, 3G web, text & email. I know this new EVO is the one to have but, I just can't see the Apple style battery. Now if it's just a tap-dance to swap batteries, maybe I could live with that but, with Sprint's gel cover, I don't even have the factory cover on it any longer - I just slip off the gel, tip the old one out and pop in another one. 10 seconds max. Only time will tell. I got my EVO on release day and knew to get an extra battery. I'll wait and see what the early adopters say this time around. LTE isn't coming to Charlotte any time soon, so I'll just sit back and see how the battery and quality control is on this one. This is my 9th EVO.
